This study proposes a method for locating buried archaeological resources that combines the discipline go geoarchaeology with the perspective of landscape evolution. The study was designed to estimate the potential for buried archaeological resources by identifying buried land surfaces (paleosols) that were available for human occupation in the past. The findings of this study are important for understanding the influence of landscape evolution on the archaeological record of eastern Contra...

Maritime Heritage Minnesota (MHM) conducted a side and down-imaging sonar survey of Aitkin County in August 2010 as part of the Mississippi River Aitkin County Survey (MRACS) Project. With the completion of the MRACS Project, the 104-mile portion of the Mississippi River in Aitkin County was the first section of any body of water in Minnesota to be systematically surveyed archaeologically using sonar. Prior to the MRACS Project, two steamboat wrecks sites had been identified within Aitkin...
